Harry Potter Cupcakes
Winning cupcakes Harry Potter fans will go wild for! These magical decorating ideas will transform a plain cupcake into a party favorite.
Food Ideas For Your Harry Potter Party
You could not get any easier than these! Pipe a super simple lightening bolt with yellow gell or icing and dessert is done.
Hedwig Owl Cupcakes
Oreos and m&ms transform a basic frosted homemade cupcake into an owl!
They are really fun to make, I will tell you that. Even Hedwig would be impressed.
Sorting Hat Cupcake Recipe
I grabbed two different sorting hat cupcake designs. This is the first one and it is the most basic. You can decide which one you are up for. I liked them both.
When your guests bite into their sorting hat cupcake, their house is revealed! How cool is that?
Butterbeer Sorting Hat Cupcakes
This one admittedly take a bit more work if you go for the butterbeer buttercream frosting, but of course, you can use regular frosting as well and keep it quick.
I love that they corred the cupcake and added in colored baking chips in the house colors. Colored chips will tumble out which is why I really like this one for a bit more spectacular surprise reveal. Hint: you could also use m&ms.
Golden Snitch Cupcakes
How cute are these? She used gold sprinkles and made the wings out of candy melts.
Neat idea and they look fabulous!
Butterbeer Frosted Cupcakes
Think butterscotch cream soda and you will have an idea of what butter beer tastes like.
She includes the full recipe but again, you do you. I would likely just make yellow cupcakes and then decorate them.
A large piping tip with a swirl as you a piping gives you the pretty frosting look here. It isn't hard at all!
Pull Apart Cupcake Basilisk
Ok, I have to admit, the Basilisk as pull-apart cupcakes is a brilliant idea.
There are a dozen cupcakes underneath the bright green snake. Pretty cool, right?!
There are also directions for the giant spiders using handy Oreos again. (yum, now I want Oreos! lol)
Mandrake Cakes in Pots
These little mandrake cakes are so adorable but do beware of their scream!
She doesn't have directions but you can either find little pots and pop cupcakes into them and decorate with little plastic babies and top with tiny pieces of a plastic plant, or you can bake right in unglazed flower pots (see here for more info if you go that route as I have never done it myself.)
Ok, so now we are at the cauldron cakes. Stay with me! I promise these are still easy even though they look complex.
Take a look at this picture, friends. What you see there is an upside-down cupcake!
It is dipped in chocolate and then chocolate handles are added to the top. It is filled with marshmallow cream. Doable for sure!

I thought these looked pretty great! Silver and gold spinkles to add a bit of magical sparkle to your homemade Potter cupcakes.
12 Cupcake Toppers
This set of 12 cupcake toppers in the HP theme includes 2 year of Harry on broom, the sorting hat, Hogwarts Express platform 9 3/4 sign, the golden snitch, gold HP initials, and, of course, the lightning bolt scar.
Cupcake Toppers Printables
You can print these from home which is super great if you do not have time to wait for shipping something. They are also super cheap which is a nice bonus.
Includes lightening bolt, sorting hat, Hogwarts Express train, Hogwarts seal, and all house seals: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff, as well as, happy birthday, HP and the deathly hallows symbol.
Great selection! Since you can print from home you can print as many personal use copies as you need, so this is also good for groups.
I hope you enjoyed all the fun decorating ideas! I know I am using more than one for our parties.
